Isn't it about time for someone in Nashville to win a Powerball jackpot? We think so and we are hoping it will be soon. The big, huge Powerball jackpot was claimed last week by three different ticket holders, one which was in the state of Minnesota, and two other tickets which were sold in the state of New Jersey. Last Wednesday's Powerball jackpot was way over 400 million, while this week's lottery is only about 70 million. That is the current estimated jackpot with a cash payout of about 39 million. Nevertheless, even if it is not the big prize, we bought our three Powerball tickets for this week, and maybe we will win.
You can find out more about the Powerball lottery, including the numbers drawn each time and what the value of the pot is by going to powerball.com. You can also sign up with your email address to receive an email when the numbers are drawn each time. Powerball numbers are drawn each Wednesday and each Saturday night, and with the jackpot now at only about 70 million, maybe not as many folks are playing it this week, and our chance to win will come up.
Powerball tickets cost $2 each and this week we spent the extra dollar per ticket to include the 'Power Play' which means we will get more than just the 'face value' if we win. Leave us a note, let us know what you think about the chance of someone in Nashville winning the Powerball jackpot this time.
